    ehm, but what are you going to do exactly? iow, what is liminoid to blogging?

    “liminal personae” are neither living nor dead, and both living and dead; they express the ambiguity of the interstructural period. This ambiguity is also demonstrated by the fact that the ritual subjects are during the seclusion period disguised or hidden; they are considered neither male nor female, deprived of rank, status and property. They are all treated equally and are subjected to the rest of the community. In sum, the liminal subjects are “neither here nor there; they are betwixt and between the positions assigned and arrayed by law, custom, convention, and ceremonial” (Turner 1969a:95).

    I love it! When you finally emerg from your chrysallis you can teach the rest of the blogosphere how to be more than we already are…
